Chris has Climbed Back, Literally, To An Active Life After Amputation  

Received following message and photo from POA client and BK amputee, Chris Morgan.  Way to go, Chris! 

“Celebrating my first Mother’s Day in 2-1/2 years not hopping, limping or crutching around. I could actually play with my kids and not feel like a ‘crabby mom.’  My daughter Jade actually commented this weekend,  ‘I love our family–we’re adventurous!’  {{grin}} Finally getting our lives back! Thanks Ronnie, Stan, and all the people at POA. You guys are awesome!”    #POAproud #workharddreambig #believe

Here’s a few photos from POA’s Ronnie “Spider Man” Dickson during a recent climbing trip to Red River Gorge, a canyon system on the Red River in east-central Kentucky. This canyon system features an abundance of sandstone cliffs, rock shelters, waterfalls and natural bridges, making it one of the world’s most popular and challenging climbing destinations. Ronnie, an above-knee amputee, makes it look easy!
